Feeling like you can't quite keep it together? Sometimes we get overwhelmed with the stresses in life and need help sorting them out. Maybe you've just hit a low point or feeling overly worried and anxious. Talking to a therapist has helped many people who are feeling the same way. The last few years have been more than difficult, and people are struggling. I help people figure out what's working well for them and what's not. Then we explore together the many strengths and skills you already have and can use to overcome the problems life throws at us. I teach new skills and introduce new tools that you can use to feel better and get your life back on track. I have many years of experience working with people with depression and anxiety as well as bipolar and schizophrenia. I am accepting of varying types of diversity and use solution focused methods with compassion and caring to create and meet the therapeutic goals that are unique to you. Starting therapy can be hard but it can change your life. I would love to work with you to start that process and look forward to meeting you.

Hi! I'm Jen Tucker, a licensed mental health counselor who is passionate about serving others. I'm a military veteran and a military spouse. I'm also a wife, mom, and soon-to-be grandmother. I've been through a lot in my life. Most of you have too. After all, you find yourself here looking for something. It is my firm belief that each and every one of us has tremendous potential. We all have unique talents and skills, honed and sharpened through our life experiences. These experiences, while crucial to shaping us, can also leave us hurt, confused, numb, or insecure. It is paramount that we stop along our journey to take stock, address our needs, heal, and refocus. Sometimes, we realize we may benefit from having extra support or guidance through these moments. That is where therapy can help. Throughout my counseling career, I have had the privilege of being able to walk beside clients as they process the past, learn to be comfortable in the present, and get excited for the future. I am certified in trauma and DBT, and treat clients with a wide range of concerns. Whether you feel ready to dive into therapy, or you are just contemplating the idea, I'd love to hear from you. I am currently accepting video clients for individual therapy. If you aren't ready to make contact, I have some resources available for self-reflection. Check out my blog at NotWavingButDrowning.org or my TikTok @MHMinute, where you'll find videos on a variety of mental health topics.

Hi there! Let's sit and chat... Are you looking for a safe space to explore and organize your thoughts and feelings? Many people see therapy as a one-sided conversation, with little opportunity for interaction or getting to experience one another as real people. I can assure you our sessions will be as real as it gets! I want to help you achieve whatever solutions and life changes you are looking for. We'll work on building trust and a sense of safety, using open communication and humor, to identify how we can improve on your already existing coping skills, supports, and knowledge. Although this process may be challenging, we will work to enjoy the process as much as possible, so you can experience yourself, your relationships, and your life in new ways. Simply put, I don't think therapy has to be a painful thing for you. Starting this step can be hard and I would love the opportunity to work with you on this journey. For Private Pay Clients: Individual Sessions: $120/hour Couple/Family Sessions: $150/hour **All couples and families are seen via private pay. This allows us to focus on the relationships in the room, rather than the diagnosis of an individual. **For those out of network, should you meet criteria for a diagnosis accepted by insurance companies, I can provide monthly superbills that you may submit to your insurance provider for potential reimbursement. Please note that the payments received by the insurance provider as reimbursement may not cover the full service fee and I cannot guarantee reimbursement.

Hello. I'm Joseph. Do you feel so anxious it is hard to leave the house in the morning? Do you feel so depressed and sad that is hard to get out of bed in the morning? Anxiety and depression are common. You are not alone in feeling this way. I help people who struggle to deal with the stresses of life. Working together, we can identify what causes your depression and anxiety and work to find solutions which will make life easier for you. It is all about finding balance. My experience allows me to help you deal with your stress, relationship issues, anxiety, trauma, or depression. Some people worry about what others will think if they seek out therapy. You are not alone. Many people deal with the same kind of things you dealing with. Therapy is a place where many people come to heal and grow. It is safe place where you can talk about whatever is on your mind and know that everything is confidential. Through compassion, empathy, and evidence-based techniques, we will find solutions for your problems and worries. Look forward to working with you!

“Taking refuge” is a phrase in Buddhism that serves as an invitation to our world-weary self to find relief. From the confusion of life’s dramas and the inevitable pull to get swept up in them. Loving relationships can offer that kind of relief, those in which one feels accepted and seen. And meditation, too: the mind slowing down and opening to its inherent spaciousness. Taking refuge requires building trustworthiness, through a softening and strengthening that happens over time in relationship. That is one of the reasons psychotherapy is effective: The trustworthiness that therapist and client build together allows for a depth of self to be known and expressed. Such encounters with self in turn build trustworthiness within oneself, for as our capacities enlarge, we enlarge. In coming to find safety and solace within, one learns to live less fearfully, participate in relationships with greater authority and ease. As a graduate of Naropa University and longtime Contemplative Psychotherapist, I see psychological healing through a Buddhist Psychology lens: as we open our hearts to ourselves through compassion and insight, we are able to shift and find more flexibility in our conditioned patterns of relating to ourselves and others. To facilitate that opening, I draw from a variety of psychotherapeutic practices and philosophies—Jungian Psychology, Gestalt Psychology, Object Relations Psychology, Rogerian Psychology, Internal Family Relations, and many mindfulness-based interventions such as Hakomi and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I seek to create a warm and compassionate space in which you can explore, understand, and transform your life.

I believe the most important part of therapy is a relationship that is non-judgmental, open, and warm. I want our time together to be collaborative. I want to understand what has worked for you in the past and what you’d like to focus on in your future. I grew up in Louisiana and started my training in New Orleans, where I worked with clients from diverse backgrounds and life experiences. I have worked with court-mandated clients, domestic violence survivors, to private therapy settings. My treatment specialties range from depression, anxiety, substance use, and trauma. I use techniques ranging from cognitive behavioral approach to EMDR when appropriate. I believe there is no such thing as “therapy as usual” because each person has a unique worldview, history, and personal goals. I want therapy to feel tailored to you and be a space for you to explore what’s on your mind.
